"We have used Timeout Sitters a handfull of times and I am so greatful that we found them. The ladies
(the owner) have sent to us have been wonderful! It is clear each one of them really like children and enjoy them. Its isn't ...more just a job. The ladies we have used actually talk to our son and interact with him. They get on his
and play. My son is 4 years old and a lot of play time is spent on the floor. I am a very tough sell on services and when it comes to my son there are no compromises. I am not someone who will think, well he wasm't crying when I left or when I came back so everything is fine. I talk to my son about his sitter and what they did. Did he have fun? What did they eat? Would you like to see her again? I have never gotten a red flag due to anything he has told me. Whenever we have told our son he is going to stay with a sitter (from Timeout Sitters) is is thrilled.
In this day and time it is so hard to find people you can trust. Its nice to know
understands how important it is to have safe and caring people staying with our child.

"I paid $39.99 for access to their
database for 30 days. I work very hard and I am very protective of my money. I found this website through Angie's list. I was leary so I sent in a couple of questions. They were prompt ...more in their response and seemed helpful. I thought I'd take it to the next step but not ready to committ to their full premium service just yet. I am so glad I didn't. I wasted my money. The
of their entire
database in Michigan yielded 98 listings. Of those 98 listings, only 7 had contact info (7%). The description of this service clearly stated instant access to contact information. What good does it do to be able to view the profile but can't contact the individual? What am I paying for? This service didn't work for me and I would not recommend it to anyone. The description of the service is misleading in that it does not include contact information for the majority of the individuals in the database. I'd recommend going with other online
services that are cheaper and you actually get contact information. "

"She was very fast in responding my email with a phone call, within 5 minutes she called me and took all my details she is a very professional person and made sure to take all my information and answer all my questions.
The reason I would not use this service again is because it took almost a week to get me 1 person for an interview and in total ...more I only got 2 candidates to interview for the
position. I decided to hire the first one she sent me and the
stood me up 24 hours before starting the job (creating a big problem with my job), a very unprofessional person. When I set up an interview with the second option she didn't show up to the interview.....so both options provided were not professional or reliable.
I expected the service to get me more options of candidates from the beginning since a
position is very delicate specially when caring for an infant.
I ended up hiring a
"They provide child care for my children. It is a home daycare ran by a lady, her mom and her sister. I took my oldest to 7 different day cares before finding them. I love that they make all of their meals from scratch, they play with the kids all day, they are reasonably priced and have been a blessing to find. We have sent our kids there since 2010

The babysitters that she has connected us with have been great; we have never had any issues with them. All of the sitters ...more provide references and a short bio, and have a background check run by

"I called after finding her on Angie's List and knew it was a long shot finding a baby sitter on such short notice. However, within 5 minutes of our phone conversation she found me a sitter. She also reduced her fee by 50% after being told the reason why I needed the sitter (Wife's Birthday). She then sent me an email with a pay
...more invoice in order to pay the bill. I paid the amount and the baby sitter called within minutes. We had the baby sitter watch our kids from 6:00 pm to 11:00 pm at a rate of $15 per hour. I ended up paying the sitter $100 (Tip of $25) because she did a good job and the kids had no complaints whatsoever. We will definitely be using this sitter again thanks to

"I am looking to return to work full time and want home child care 50 hours weekly. She worked in my expected price range and is matching me with potential nannies that meet the requirements of my family.
also found us a potential baby sitter to interview immediately so that I can go on a date night with my husband. I am interviewing ...more the potential babysitter next week.
I have three kids and the oldest is 3. We do not have any family in the area. To pay $100 for a qualified and screened babysitter in my area is worth it. And
is still working on finding me the perfect full time
Any candidates I interview in the process I can use as baby sitters or back up nannies if my full time
